Chamber of Commerce Partnerships

Benedictine University at Springfield builds its educational life and efforts on the same values which Benedictine men and women espouse. Among the seven values espoused by Benedictines and embraced by Benedictine University at Springfield are a tradition of hospitality, an appreciation for living and working in community, and a concern for the development of each person. Serving the business communities which serve the University is just another way of saying "thank you."

That is why Benedictine University at Springfield established Chamber Tuition Discount Partnerships. The plan provides a 25 percent tuition discount to full-time employees of chamber businesses and their immediate family members (spouse and dependent children only).

The tuition discount applies to new students only who are enrolling in undergraduate and graduate programs awarded by Benedictine University at Springfield. The discount cannot be combined with other student tuition discount/institutional awards.

How the Program Works

The Chamber of Commerce Tuition Discount eligibility ceases for a member employee, spouse or dependent on the date when the eligible member is no longer employed by a Chamber of Commerce member. If the Member changes eligibility status during a term in which a tuition discount has been applied the amount of the tuition discount will be prorated. It is the responsibility of the Employer to notify Benedictine University at Springfield of any employment changes.
